FAME WEEK | BRING THE BEAT: WITH LEON “KWIKSTIKS” KITTRELL II
The beat breakdown is one of the most important elements of a hit song— in this event we invite performing artist Leon Kittrell II to breakdown famous beats over the years, as well as a few student submitted songs.
Infused with fun games like “Guess the Groove”, Leon will take us on a musical journey where we strip away the vocals and other instruments and focus solely on the drums & percussion of some of today’s biggest hits.

He is totally self-taught and has never had a lesson. He has been touring for the last 15 years. Starting out his career with his first major gig in the hip hop world with Travis Porter, he has crossed all genre and boundaries as a drummer to date.
